Kapersky

Having done a reinstall I keep getting a message about an incompatible Kapersky driver.

Since I have never used Kapersky and it's in my Win 7 partition it must have installed with Win 7, so why am I getting an incompatibility message?

Any idea how I can rid of Kapersky? It doesn't appear in control panel, and when I do a download and install from the the site recommended by MS I get "incompatible with this OS".

The message appearing every time I boot is more of an inconvenience than anything else. but I would like to get rid of it (and Kapersky itself) if I can.

Thanks, I'll certainly give that a try later, and keep you updated.

No go I'm afraid.

Downloaded the file, but about a quarter of a minute into the install I get "Access denied"

Doesn't say what is denying the access, just aborts the install.

Update for reference - hadn't realised until reading the latest PCA that Zone Alarm uses Kaspersky.

I had tried installing Zone Alarm, found it doesn't work with 64 bit and removed it.

Obviously it left some Kaspersky stuff behind.

There is an upgrade of Kaspersky Internet Security designed specifically for working with Windows 7. It is available for free from the Kaspersky website.

Kaspersky do a removal tool to help remove bits of their AV from computers that are left behind after using add and remove. I believe it is to be found on their support site at click here I'm sure if you look around their support site you will find it.

Many thanks.

The minor annoyance has disappeared of its own accord.

Any bits left over will go anyway when I either re-install Xp or install a full Win 7 retail version.
